Trying to pay attention to all 5 senses grounds me and keeps me in the present moment.

I always write in the journal part of this app. I try to do this as often as I can, therefore I'm not going over things in my head

I moved my study table in a position in front of my window. Just lifting my chin I can see the valley, and the sky and clouds changing during the days and the hours.

I try to name the items in a room to help me stay present when I feel an anxiety attack or a flash back starting up.

Last weekend I was upset and started walking around the city and seeing so many new places I haven’t been before reminded me of what a beautiful place I live in.

Taking a walk outside, reconnecting to my breath, not looking at my phone.

writing thoughts down. i have a journal labeled “negative journal.” when i have hundreds of thoughts spinning in my head, i write them down, then slam the book shut and put it away in a drawer. it’s a good way of getting those thoughts out immediately and then not thinking about them for a while.

I’m teaching my middle school students mindful breathing to help them learn to control their anxiety.

Lately I've been putting my phone away or leaving it behind. You don't realize the distraction it causes until you start to forget about it!

Today I needed to clear my head, so I went into Central London and stared at many different views. Seeing people rush by, relax, walk, talk etc made me think about myself and helped me to get myself together. Try it - go somewhere beautiful with a nice view (e.g. ocean, field) and just sit, stare and take photos... Hope this helps anyone xox

Making time for mindfulness and meditation has been the best thing I have done in years. I used to think I was too busy to do this but I was wrong

I received an evil eye from a random and intimate place which caught me off guard and defensive. In turn I tried my best to not react and escalate things by trying to articulate myself in the best way possible as well as still trying my best to move on from that hurt and negativity that was thrown my way and towards my companion as a result. People can only meet you as much as they've met themselves. Trying to remain in that understanding and mindfulness today. 🙏🏻

I focus a lot on mindfulness. I seek ways to employ it in subtle fashions while in the public eye. If I'm feeling anxiety and on the verge of loosing my sense of self, I'll often place my hand on my wrist and focus on the sensation of the warmth being passed between my palm and the skin of my arm. Which is giving more warmth? Receiving? How rough is my skin? The hairs on my arms? What part is most sensitive to the warmth and texture? It's called grounding and I use it daily.

Today on my way to my early morning church class, I saw a beautiful sunrise over the school. It was too pretty for words or for a photograph. Nature is a good way to stay mindful.

Whenever I feel anxious I always go on a walk so I can get some separation from everything and clear my mind.

Life has been busier lately and I realized when I slow down, I feel anxious. It has happened at bedtime lately. Last night I became aware of it, so I tried mindfulness and slow, deep breathing and it helped me calm down.
